Wheel aerodynamic resistance (30%-scale only): The overall aerodynamic resistance to the motion of a ground vehicle includes not only the drag force of the vehicle in-line with the direction of motion, but also the aerodynamic torque experienced by the wheels.
The ICCT tests concentrated on determining the inertia, friction, and aerodynamic resistance for the 29 different cars -- all the forces that are collectively called "road load" data -- and comparing that to the official road load statistics provided by the manufacturers.
Aerodynamic resistance of all parts has to be decreased for lower energy consumption.
Airbrake parameters showed the spoilers, aerodynamic resistance plates on the wings, were deployed and held in that position until the end of the recordings, which proved the throttle was manually controlled.
This approach includes reducing work the engine must perform, reducing vehicle weight, aerodynamic resistance, rolling resistance, and accessories, plus improving the efficiency of the internal combustion engine power train.
Maybe you should build a coin-toss program", I joked," All the aerodynamic resistance is supposed to obstruct the results of the toss from being absolutely fair and random, right?
The symbols of these equations represent: p = air density (kg/m3), pv = vegetation density (kg/m3), Cp = specific heat of air at constant pressure (Joules /(kg K)); cvg = specific heat vegetation (Joule/(kg K)) T = air temperature (K), Tv = vegetation temperature (K) and = saturation pressure of water vapor in the air (Newton/m2), and pressure = water vapor in the air (Newton/m2) [DELTA] = des/dT (Newton/m2 K)), R = energy available on the surface (Watt/m2), y = constant psychometric (Newton/(m2 K)); ra = aerodynamic resistance to water flow (s/m) and rc = surface resistance to heat flow (s/m)
Delivers fuel efficiency and low CO2 emissions that are among the best in its class thanks to its all-new MIVEC(1) engine and thoroughly reduced aerodynamic resistance and rolling resistance.
The newly designed middle cowl features improved aerodynamic performance at higher speeds - the aerodynamic resistance value is 4 percent better than that of the existing YZF-R15.
where [theta] is gliding angle, X is aerodynamic resistance force, Y is aerodynamic lift force, K is coefficient of performance, [C.
